But luckily for you, there are various charging ports and stations in the Cherry Hill-area where you can get charged up today!

Electric Vehicle Charging Station Options 

If you live in the Sicklerville-area, you’ll be pleased to know that there are various charging stations near you! But if you want to explore all of the charging options you have with an EV, check out the following options below:

  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging (Regular Outlet): A normal grounded (three-prong) 110V/120V charging outlet (Level 1 Charging) doesn’t offer a fast charging speed but it’s a good option for topping off some of the charge you used commuting to work that day. How long does Level 1 charging take? Usually around 24 hours or more for a full charge. In other words, expect it to take days, not hours, to charge with this method.
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Domestic Charging: Level 2 Charging is typically professionally installed. Level 2 charging uses rapid (usually 240V+) chargers most often made for your brand of car will have significantly faster charging rates than using a regular grounded household outlet. Think hours, not days. DC fast chargers (as opposed to AC ones) are also common. It’s not unheard of to obtain an 80% charge in a half an hour or forty minutes with this type of charging method, but that extra 20% will take longer as there’s a diminishing rate of charging speed as well.
  3. Public Charging: You can charge on-the-go in Sicklerville at parking garages, malls, hotels, and even apartment buildings. You’ll often find charging stations at big-name national stores like Walgreens and Kohls, and more charging stations are being added every day across the country. These charging stations vary in type and speed, but often provide Level 2 charging speeds for greater convenience. Some public chargers even offer emissions-free renewable energy charging with solar panels or wind turbines!

Domestic Port Electric Car Charge Time

Now, if you’re asking, “how long does it take to charge an electric car at home?” your Nissan electric car charge time may vary based on the port you’ve installed in your home. See what are your charging times below:

  • Level 1 EV charging often takes days to fully charge an electric car. 
  • Level 2 EV charging often takes several hours to fully charge an electric car. You can often get between 60-200 miles of range in just 20-30 minutes with Level 2 DC charging, though. For this reason, most people intermix daytime “top-off” charging with overnight charging.

Public Charging Port Times

If you’re wondering about the Nissan electric car charging time for public stations, you’ll be surprised to know they’re different from domestic ports. Most home chargers have 3.7 kW or 7 kW charging, while public stations offer 22 kW charging, 43-50 kW rapid charging, and 150 kW rapid charging. For some Nissan vehicles, you could get a full charge in an hour or so.
